Visual Arts Week
Friday, October 6, 2023
Celebrating the visual arts with the Mayor's Art Show, Lane Arts Council's First Friday ArtWalk, workshops, artist highlights, a parade and more!
Visual Arts Week celebrates the visual arts and provides a platform for experimentation, creativity and dialogue. Join us for the kickoff event at the October 6 First Friday ArtWalk, followed by a week of immersive art experiences.
Visit Eugene’s galleries to enjoy the latest creations from our community’s artists, including the new entries in this year’s Mayor’s Art Show. Learn about the inspiration and processes behind recent artworks and exhibitions with Lane Arts Council's Artist Highlights. Tour satellite art installations and Windowfront Exhibitions displayed throughout the downtown area and revisit our city’s 20x21 murals. Expand your artistic skills under the guidance of seasoned artists in workshops provided by Maude Kerns Art Center. Enter a magical world of illuminated artistry with ArtCity’s BEAM 2023 showcase, then close the week with the nighttime BEAM BRiGHT parade and dance party.
Art is a shared interaction, cultural exchange, and a powerful communication that compels us to think, feel and connect. Celebrate the visual arts with us!
